Incredible Quilts...

"Across The Spectrum" - pieced - Carol Niemann
 I attended the Peace River Quilt Guild quilt show over the weekend.
It was a true treat for the senses...so many incredible quilts...so much
quilting talent! I took many more photographs than I'll share here,
but I had to choose a few to give you an idea of what captivated me
for more than a few hours. You may notice that I took more pictures
of applique' quilts than anything else. What really impressed me was
the sheer number of applique' quilts that were hand quilted
Truly breathtaking!

I'll stop talking and just give you captions from here on...
"Classic Baltimore" - applique' - MaryAnn Jacobs
"Autumn Beauty" - pieced and applique' - Carolyn Freeman
"My Whimsical Quilt Garden" - applique' - Connie Johnson
"Round Robin" - pieced and applique' - JoAnn Burtscher

Didn't they just take your breath away? I know!!

Congratulations to the Peace River Quilt Guild for hosting an 
incredible show. Every single piece was a feast for the eyes.
I left truly inspired - and I know I wasn't the only one.

These quilts are beautiful and breathtaking. Makes me want to pick up my tiny little brand new quilting needle and thread and material. Thank you Donna Dear for sharing these treasures...
